    I'm glued to the Lee Child "Jack Reacher" series right now.

    What is everyone else reading these days?

    Anyone have any good recommendations for really well written action/thrillers?

    Same as three years ago, Game of Thrones. I think my net progress is negative. Every week or two I get to a spot that I've read before, but obviously haven't realised that I lost my page somewhere along the way.

    Just started The Roving Party and hope to move on to The Goldfinch - both books that I bought more than a year ago. Will let you know what they're like.

    Sounds interesting. What, in your opinion, makes it so? I really like non-fiction - is this based on "real" life?

    Anna Karenina, at long last after watching 'The Beautiful Lie' on the ABC which was a modern twist on the classic.

    I've read every L.C book now...fantastic.

    After these; try Nelson Demille - read all of his too - excellent characters and writing style.

    Currently reading the 2nd Hunger Games book - one down and 1.5 to go.

    For towing a van or a camper?
    Read recently a family using a small truck (a lot more people doing this) for towing their van. Makes sense With vans getting so big these days!!
